QOTD

From Slate's Mickey Kaus:
An idea so crazy it just might be crazy! Facing an economic slowdown, possible deflation, declining readership and competition that gives away its product for free, the Los Angeles Times raises newsstand prices 50%.

OK, starting a lottery:

When will the LA Times either
a) Go into receivership
b) Be sold to someone with a clue

???

"Receivership" means any form of bankruptcy

"Be sold" means "sale authorized and accepted by all parties with a say in it"

One month increments, starting with February 2009, first come, first served.

:oP

a) likely, perhaps this year.

b) impossible. No one in the MSM has a clue. And anyone with a clue wouldn't buy into the newspaper business.
